Francisco Meirino Biography

Francisco Meirino (1975 / Spain / Switzerland)

Active since 1994 in sound and live performance, Francisco Meirino explores the tension between programmable material and the potential for its failure, he is primarily interested in theidea of recording what is not supposed to be : gear failures, the death of PA systems, electro­static background noises and how a failure can become something more than just annoying.
Francisco Meirino's music is a complex and constantly changing electronic soundscape that ranges from dynamic electro-acoustic to sheer noise blasts and is fascinating by its physical intensity and detail precision.

He works mainly with the computer, contact microphones and various acoustic devices.« In the end, it's all about encouraging the listener to get involved. In making your own choice about how you listen to a record. To listen in ways that make you question the act of making or listening to sound itself. » .
With more than 100 live performances in various venues and festivals in Europe, Japan and North America, Francisco Meirino tries to raise the stress level of the audience by using sound phenomena.
